LEIGHTON PARK SCHOOL

At its core, a Leighton Park ed­u­ca­tion fo­cuses on the in­di­vid­ual and the prom­ise of choice.

Our ethos in­forms an ap­proach where stu­dents are able to fol­low their most im­pas­sioned in­ter­ests, be­come ac­tive learn­ers and strive to ful­fil their po­ten­tial.

Stu­dents ben­e­fit from an aca­dem­i­cally rig­or­ous, broad and in­no­va­tive cur­ricu­lum. The sciences, math­e­mat­ics and the cre­ative arts, in­clud­ing mu­sic, film pro­duc­tion and art, are par­tic­u­lar strengths of the school.

This strength in breadth en­ables a fo­cus on cre­ative prob­lem-solv­ing and in­ter­dis­ci­pli­nary ap­proaches, en­cour­ag­ing stu­dents to an­a­lyse and put for­ward so­lu­tions to to­day’s com­plex chal­lenges, of­ten sup­ported by the school’s im­pres­sive part­ner­ships with uni­ver­si­ties, in­dus­try and cul­tural or­gan­i­sa­tions, such as Cisco and Pinewood Stu­dios.

Cen­tral to the school’s ap­proach, we teach lead­er­ship, cre­ative think­ing and risk-tak­ing, em­pow­er­ing stu­dents to be a force for good in the world and re­flect­ing the school’s Quaker ethos.

In Sixth Form, stu­dents can choose be­tween the In­ter­na­tional Bac­calau­re­ate Diploma Pro­gramme (IB) or A Lev­els, and can opt to do four A Lev­els so that their choices are not limited so early in life. Among other ac­co­lades, the school is in the top five in the UK for small co­hort IB re­sults.

Our wrap-around pro­vi­sion, which wel­comes day stu­dents from 7.15am to 10.00pm, of­fers young peo­ple the time to dis­cover and de­velop their tal­ents. The quiet mo­ments and the calm at­mos­phere of our 60 acre park, en­cour­age stu­dents to
